"i wonder maybe you could make up a little cartoon movie. we could make a movie of this and share it with more people." and at that time, he was working as a dishwasher down on telegraph avenue. and i said, "steve, quit the dishwashing. "i'll grubstake you. i'll get you groceries. "i'll feed you and i'll grubstake me. "maybe city college will let you use some of their equipment and we'll make a little animated movie." and he made an animated movie on everything that we-- would you like to see it? okay. roll it, lionel. we'll see it right here, gang. right here. ♪ where did the time go? ♪ does anybody, does anybody know? ♪ ♪ when did the day break? ♪ did someone drop it, was it a mistake? ♪ ♪ la, la, la, la la, la, la... did you know that time's different when you move at different speeds, that when you move through space, you change the rate at which you move into the future? well, you

, that we'll work on. >> steve mcshane here. mcshane's nursery and landscape supply. think of the best salsa you've ever had. it was the fresh cilantro, wasn't it? herbs go a long way in the garden and we're going to learn a little bit about how to succeed with herbs in your landscape and in backyard. well, let's see, the first thing i'd say is you need to plan for your herb garden. most people are growing herbs these days in containers. they put a little gravel in the bottom, water their high-grade potting soil, maybe a little bit of [indistinct], add some starter fertilizer to get them going. i always tell people--select things that are going to be found to be a little exotic. edible plants as well. why not mix in with your herbs thgs like nasturtium? the flowers in nasturtium are a little peppery. they do a lot for your salads. calendula is also edible. these blooms, the plant, what a great addition to your salads and entrees. the other thing i'd say to folks is make sure you consider sun, sunlight, 6 to 8 hours a day. if you've got the right plan, you got the right herbs, you're feeding

those up. i like that, steve. a good job. hendrick: it's important to help the child be successful when he does go back so that he has the experience of substituting acceptable for unacceptable behavior. it will probably be necessary to take a few minutes and get him really interested. be sure to congratulate the child when he's settled down, perhaps saying, "now you're doing the right thing, and i'm proud of you." i can hear you saying, "going through these steps is just fine, "but what if he goes back and does the same thing again? what then?" [roaring] well, then we have to go through the steps again. but after that, he has to choose another place to play. you may have noticed that i didn't include any timeouts as one of my intervention steps, and i'll tell you why. although i believe timeout is certainly an improvement over spanking, yelling, or worst yet, shaking a child, it still has its drawbacks. what do you think concerns me most about it? note that when this teacher says timeout, she does not send the child off to sit by himself. instead, she keeps him with her. woman: you won

-grandson steve hearst. the now 80,000-acre hearst ranch is one of the largest and oldest working cattle ranches on the california coast. but when the new generation of hearsts took over, the question quickly became, how can the ranch keep thriving in t modern era? >> and it was my ranch manager cliff garrison who said, "gee, steve, it's a shame we couldn't do anything with our beef." and i said, "well, why couldn't we?" and so ultimately we started pursuing the grass-fed beef, and it fit right in with the whole conservation solution for the property. >> it's fun. it's a picnic every day. you know, we love it. it's a beautiful place and a great place to work. >> so from the shadow of their famous neighbor, the hearst ranch is stepping into the spotlight these days with their brand-new grass-fed beef operation. grazing on rolling hills with picturesque views, the hearst beef is billed as nothing being added but their history, and it's true. the cattle thrive on nutrient-rich native grasses that have been there since the days of william randolph hearst, and today they're actually being helped and

tuned for more of the tempting tastes of california. >> welcome back to "california country." >> steve mcshane here, mcshane's nursery and landscape spot, also known as dr. dirt. has your soil got you sick? well, i might have the remedy. take a look at this medium, breathing with life. soil is where it all begins in the garden, teeming with microorganisms, as much as a billion per teaspoon. it's just marvelous. microorganisms are what bringing--breaking down that nutrients and making them plant-available. one of the most important things when talking about soil microbiology is temperature. i keep a soil thermometer in my garden, because when things get to 50 degrees or higher, microbial activity spikes, making those nutrients available. now, there's some things we can do to get microbes goin'. first one is kelp. second one is alfalfa. by adding either of these amendments to the soil, studies have shown populations spike. there's also some trace nitrogen. and knowing that microorganisms are feeding on organic matter, i recommend adding some every year. maybe an inch to the vegetable gar
